Karen Tintori

Karen Tintori knew she'd be a writer from age twelve. As a child, she walked ten blocks to the public library, checked out as many books as she could carry between her interlocked fingers and her chin, read them quickly and returned for another stack.

Before she was 13, she'd read the entire children's section and bristled when the librarians would not permit her to borrow books from the adult section until she was of age. Patience was a lesson she'd begin to learn early--the librarians invited her, instead, to re-read the children's section.  

Is your book club reading one of Karen's books? Feel free to drop her a note to arrange a phone or Skype call to join your group's discussion. Karen loves hearing from her readers, enjoys traveling to meet them, and welcomes speaking invitations. 


Unto the Daughters now in paperback

Two new reviews have been added to the cover blurbs in this edition, one from Grace Olivo's Comunes of Italy Magazine:

"Many books are called 'page-turners' by reviewers, but this one will truly have you glued to the turning pages for hours.  It's a must read for anyone researching their Italian ancestry."

And another one, from The Harvard College Journal of Italian American 
History and Culture: 

"This poignant family history creates an accessible and intriguing portrait of many aspects of the Italian-American experience.  [A} heartfelt and compelling story."

Grazie Mille to all of you who have purchased this book of my heart and written so many wonderful comments about it.
